    On Tuesday at Stanford, in the 1st round of the Bank of the West Classic, the 2014 champ at Birmingham, Auckland & Monterrey (and the 2008 French Open champion), 26 year old 5th seeded #11 (and former #1) Ana Ivanovic of Serbia (residence: Basel, SUI), defeated the 2013 Wimbledon finalist (and 2011 champ at Birmingham and Dallas), 24 year old #30 (career high #13) Sabine Lisicki of Germany (residence: Bradenton, FL), 7-6(2), 6-1 (photo shown).

    Ana said: "It was a really good match, even though it was both of our first matches in a while. I got down in that first set and [Sabine] was playing really well, and serving really well too. I really tried to find my rhythm in that set, and in the second set I really started feeling her serves a little bit more. It was a really tough draw for both of us, and I'm happy I was able to win this one." WTA story

    While she lost the match, Sabine posted a new all-time WTA service speed record of 131 miles per hour (previous best was 130mph by Brenda Schultz-McCarthy in qualies at Cincy in 2006, and 129mph by Venus Williams in a main draw match).

    In the Stanford 2nd round on Thursday, Ana will play a Stanford student, 19 year old qualifier #440 Carol Zhao of Canada.

    Ana and Carol have never before met on the field of combat.

    Also on Tuesday at Stanford, the 2014 champion at Hobart, Tasmania, 20 year old #28 (career high: #27) Garbine Muguruza from Barcelona, Spain, defeated the 2013 Stanford champion (and 2014 Acapulco champ & Australian Open finalist), 25 year old 6th seeded #12 (career high: #10) Dominika Cibulkova from Bratislava, Slovakia, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 (photo shown).

    In the Stanford 2nd round on Thursday, Garbine will play the 2013 Birmingham champion (and the 2002 & '07 Indian Wells champ), 31 year old #31 (career high: #5) Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco).

Live Scores | draws: WTA: Q - main - D | pics: T.com - ESPN - Y! news | WTA

    On Sunday in Azerbaijan, in the final of the Baku Cup, the 2013 Baku champion, 19 year old 2nd seeded #35 (career high #33) Elina Svitolina from Kharkiv, Ukraine, defeated the 2012 Baku champion (and 2013 champ at Tashkent), 22 year old 5th seeded #40 (career high: #34) Bojana Jovanovski from Belgrade, Serbia, 6-1, 7-6(2) (Bojana is shown during her quarterfinal victory; Elina is shown holding the glassware after the match).

    Elina's prize is $43,000; Bojana's prize is $21,400.

    After Elina won the 1st set easily, both players held serve throughout the 2nd set. But Elina again dominated in the 2nd set tiebreak.

    Elina said: "I think we were both nervous at the start of the match, but I handled it really well. In the second set [Bojana] was trying to fight, and she's not the type of person who gives up. I've watched her fighting for every ball and for every set before and I was actually expecting this fightback.

    "But I was playing really well here and I'm happy I could defend my title. I'm really happy with the way I'm playing and I'm enjoying myself. I'm feeling really confident with my game right now." WTA story

    Bojana said: "In the first set I couldn't find any rhythm. In the second set I tried to come back and it was a little bit better, but it still wasn't enough to win the set. I had a few chances to break but didn't use my opportunities. But [Elina] played really well today and definitely deserved to win."

    Elina and Bojana had never before met on the field of combat (pro singles). Elina is now 2-0 in WTA singles finals, and has a 25-17 singles match record in 2014. Bojana is now 2-1 in WTA singles finals, and has a 14-18 singles match record this year.

    In the Baku doubles final on Sunday, Heather Watson and Alexandra Panova defeated 3rd seeded Raluca Olaru and Shahar Peer, 6-2, 7-6(3).

  Tennis History:

"The 700-year-old French game of tennis, traditionally as much a lady's as a man's game, was introduced to the U.S. in 1874 by a woman, Mary E. Outerbridge..."
See more from this Sept. 9, 1946, TIME Magazine cover story on women's tennis and 1946 Wimbledon and Forest Hills champ Pauline Betz now on the Tennis Articles page.

TIME Magazine, May 23, 1955:
    In her first column, the San Diego Union's new Women's Sports Editor Maureen ("Little Mo") Connolly, retired as the world's greatest lady tennis star at a ripe old 21, showed that sports punditry is as easy for her as smashing a tennis ball down an opponents throat.
    Lamented Little Mo in great pontifical style: "[On] the American scene today ... we're reducing sports to a cluster of numbers on a board ... We ... are expecting our champions to be stadium automatons, the human equivalents of the balls in a super pinball machine ... We're watching for the numbers to light up and forgetting the play."
